I wanted to start a thread for a genre that doesn't get as much recognition that it rightfully deserves. The common misconception about hip hop is that most of it is about the same thing, girls, drugs, money, etc. And that is not true. There's a lot of great hip hop out there, and I myself have run into some pretty great tunes that have changed my mindset on hip hop in it's entirety. So i'll post videos here, and you can post some as well. Just figured this would be a good thread to make to hopefully clear most if not all the misconceptions that this genre has against it. I had a good friend of mine turn me onto some of the best underground hip hop i've heard in a long time.

So here's some videos:

Blue Scholars - No Rest For The Weary



Common Market - Escaping Arkham



P.O.S - Why Go (Pearl Jam cover)

Can't believe someone had the guts to make this! I'm not up to par on my underground hip hop. I really like The Roots though.



I'll have to come back when I'm not half awake. ;)

Some more from Blue Scholars. They're probably one of my top 5 favorites in terms of hip hop.

^Nice. I've listened to some Jedi Mind Tricks and have enjoyed what i've heard. May look into them more tonight or tomorrow though as a refresher.

I found quite a few Jedi Mind Tricks albums for download, so i'm going to give them a listen sometime tonight most likely.

Looks like they also released a new album last month. Violence Begets Violence
